Three players Sheffield Wednesday could look to move on this summer - including Nuhiu

Sheffield Wednesday - The Owls

We take a look at three players Championship side Sheffield Wednesday could show to the exit door this summer.

Expectations are rising at Hillsborough. Following Dejphon Chansiri's takeover of the club, Sheffield Wednesday are predicted to be among the leading contenders for promotion next season and plenty of additions are being mooted over the summer.

To make room for these incoming buys, Wednesday will have to offload some of their current fringe players and in this piece we take a look at three players the Owls could look to move on.

Gary Madine

Madine was Wednesday's main goalscoring threat when they were playing at League One level, but he has struggled to make the grade in the Championship. 

The target-man centre-forward has struggled with off the field issues and he does not appear to have the quality required to be a hit in the second-tier.

The 24-year-old has scored just four goals in his 37 Championship appearances for Wednesday to date and with his contract running down, he should be allowed to find a new home this summer. 

Giles Coke

There have been times when Coke has promised a lot at Wednesday, but he hasn't been able to nail down a first-team place more recently.

The midfielder doesn't offer quite enough in either a defensive or attacking sense to be worth keeping and, with quality additions incoming, he is short of the standard required.

Like Madine, Coke is also heading out of contract and the club should simply let him go.

Atdhe Nuhiu

A controversial choice, but Wednesday need better than Nuhiu if they are to get promoted from the Championship.

The forward has been the club's top scorer this season, but he is likely to be left in the shadows after the summer spending.

Wednesday are set to bring in at least one forward in the summer and with a newly laid pitch, Stuart Gray will be looking to play a more aesthetically pleasing brand of football.

That will not suit Nuhiu, who is more comfortable playing in a team that favours a more direct approach, and, as a result, it is hard to see where he fits in. 

Chris Maguire, Stevie May, Sergiu Bus and Caolan Lavery will all be hoping to move ahead of Nuhiu in the pecking order for places at Hillsborough next season and with more additions to come, he may as well be sold as his chances of playing regularly look to be limited.
